Poetry III [Jeanine Walker]
In examining the rhetoric of contemporary published poets, we learn new techniques to apply to our own work. We’ll read and study, among others, Jericho Brown, Farnoosh Fathi, and Hayan Charara. Building on a foundation of craft elements, we’ll practice generative writing exercises to produce new poems. Students will participate in a supportive workshop in which their work is appreciated for what it is and where they are creatively encouraged to grow.
